An introduction to the different API authentication methods used with the PayConex API library.
There are two parameters required to authenticate an API request.
The values for these parameters can be retrieved from your PayConex account's Settings page.
PayConex allows you to validate your request by sending the
api_accesskey directly in the API request. This will be shown in code examples in the documents linked below.
A second way to validate an API request is by taking advantage of the PayConex HASH authentication. This method is intended to allow increased security as it does not require including the
api_accesskey directly within an API request.
The PayConex HASH authentication also allows the hashing of other transaction parameters. This provides the ability to accomplish tasks like including a unique identifier for PayConex to use in API authentication.
This authentication method is typically implemented within client-side applications you would not want to store sensitive information such as the
For more on using the HASH authentication method please see our Reference Guide, Using Hashed Authentication.
